Upon leaving the Museum and Cultural Center, we took a drive around the Pueblo though you can’t see it except for a quick glimpse of the Mission’s cross and bell tower without taking a tour with a Zuni guide.

We drove from there over to the Paywa’s Zuni Bakery for some bread. After buying a loaf (that’s a pretty loose description) we went out back to tour the oven. It is like a dome of adobe that the baker first builds a fire in. Once the dome is hot, the ashes are removed and the bread is placed inside. The residual heat in the brick from the fire would bake the bread. They were in the process of removing the freshly baked loaves from the oven when we showed up. It was very interesting and smelled fantastic!

We then headed back toward Gallup on the way to Window Rock.
